Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0425204278, Mass Market Paperback)Detective Paris Murphy is back in her Twin Cities precinct for the third time (Clean Cut, Cold Blood), but if her husband has her way, it won't be for long; he's pressuring her to move to Arizona, where he's been offered a new job, and if she doesn’t agree, it's likely to mean the end of her marriage. She's almost ready to agree when clues to a bar killing in a north country backwater in the ice-locked Iron Range point to a couple of suspects who may be headed her way--a female university professor who's a colleague of Paris's father-in-law, and a young man never prosecuted for the shooting death of his own father in a hunting accident. "Catch" Clancy might be Serene Ransom's lover, her hostage, or her partner in crime--or maybe, as Paris surmises, all three. While Paris is pondering her own emotional stability, it's a lot stronger than Serene's; the no longer young but still beautiful academic is about to be fired for inappropriate relationships with her male students. But it's her strange hold on the bartender whose attempts to save her from a late night assault by a gun-toting snowmobiler who forced his way into the bar just as Clancy was closing up, along with her subsequent descent into madness, that is portrayed in chilling detail. He manages to win the reader's sympathy despite his role in Serene's murderous activities, but there's no way it can end well for him, even if by the last page Paris manages to resolve her own dilemma, at least until her next outing in Monsour's series. --Jane Adams
